  • The pathway connecting the bus exchange to University Boulevard will remain closed.
  • The UBC Bus Loop Map details where bus stops will be located. Some directional signage will also be put out around the construction area, but please forward this information widely to your networks.

Update on new 41st Ave B-Line to UBC
March 21, 2019

As previously announced, TransLink has been targeting fall 2019 for the launch of the region’s three new B-Lines and this remains a possibility.

At this time, TransLink has updated this timeline and they may launch some or all of the new B-Line routes in mid-November 2019. However, it’s possible one or more may launch in early January 2020 or other dates in early 2020, if necessary.

When TransLink confirms a date for the launch of the 41st Avenue B-Line from Joyce-Collingwood Station we will inform the UBC community.

TransLink explains that the uncertainty in the launch schedule for the new B-Line routes are due to estimated construction timelines, combined with a tight construction market.

After many years of being unable to expand the transit system, TransLink is now in the midst of the region’s biggest expansion in its history. They want to let the public know they are doing their best to roll out new services as quickly as possible to meet demand. However, as they move forward with projects, unforeseen circumstances sometimes influence their timelines.
